The Red Hat certification team recently made some adjustments to the RHCSA & RHCE exams objectives for RHEL 7.
Concerning the RHCSA exam, VNC and LUKS related tasks have been removed, when firewall settings can now be set up through iptables or firewalld, which is very sensible. The client LDAP configuration, although no longer directly specified, seems to remain an objective through the client configuration to an authentication service.
This appears to be a slight adjustment with very limited consequences.
Concerning the RHCE exam, access to Samba shares through Kerberos authentication has been added when Rsyslog client & server configurations have been removed.
Two easy tasks have been replaced with a complicated one, emphasizing again the weight of Kerberos.
A RHCE 7 candidate will definitely need serious Kerberos skills! At least, it’s what Red Hat people want.
